French Please



Hi, I’m Adèle.

My passion is to help people master the French language at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

The purpose of my courses is to introduce the French language to English speaking people through the use of all five senses as well as working with different learning strategies. Students will gain an understanding of the French language and will eventually be able to write and hold a comprehensive conversation. The final day consists of a wonderful closure to the program with oral presentations and a quiz. A certificate will be sent for each level achieved.

You’ll find the classes enlightening, engaging, and expansive with great educational content on several subjects.

I have helped hundreds of students take their learning to the next level.

I would like to recommend Adele Poratto for the position of educator. While working in Taiwan, Adele, demonstrated professionalism and an absolute love to instruct students. She would take the train, from Taichung each day, and travel an hour to get to her school. She would do this each school day, even in the height of inclement weather. She would grade her student’s work and measured her criticism with compassion. She would also spend extra time with her students. Adele would be an asset to any organization that she would become involved with. If you have any further questions regarding this exceptional person, please let me know.
